Let Us Make Tax Season... Less... Taxing

It's almost here. THAT deadline.

You know the one. The one you jump on early if you expect a refund, or ignore to the last minute if you think you owe.

It's the Income Tax filing deadline, April 15th.

For those who fall into the second group and have not yet completed their 2008 tax returns, Tax Forum 2009 airs Sunday, March 22 from 1:30 to 3:30PM.

Call in and have your tax-related questions answered by members of the Rhode Island Society of Certified Public Accountants.

During the two-hour telecast, the on-air panel will discuss every aspect of tax preparation, and new rules and regulations. Panelists include:
